medals with 43 and in gold with 21. china is close behind with 42 total and 20 gold. russia moved into third place with 23 total and three gold and to london and mark phillips who joins us with a look at so much more. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, rebecca, terrell. just as the stars set, the new ones rise. the swimming is winding down. all countries not named usa might be breathing a sigh of relief. the pool, 28 medals so far. the next highest is china is 9. there were four golds last night, the u.s. took three of them. michael phelps says this is his last olympics and he's going out in style. the 100-meter butterfly is the second to last event. why shouldn't it be another gold, his 17th. 21 medals overall now. he's got one more event.
5:01am
a freestyle the u.s. is expected to win. it all seems to be harder on his mother than it is on him. and u.s. swimming success seems secure in the hands of the upcoming generation. 17-year-old missy franklin took another gold in the 200-meter backstroke. her third. her dominance in the pool is now an established fact. but the olympics create new facts all the time. this is 15-year-old katiely deck i. that she made the tomb was a surprise. that she swam away from the rest of the field in the 800-meter freestyle was a revelation. >> it was neat to swim after missy and michael. their wins really pumped me up. when i walked into the ready room, michael gave me a high five and wished me good luck. that meant a lot to me. >> the main stage shifts from poolside to trackside. sanya richards-ross won her heat in the 400-meter.
5:02am
and tur nesh di baba won in the 10,000 meters and barely seemed to be breathing hard. >> winning with a smile. the presumption is that michael phelps will be smiling again tonight after his last olympian race in the relay. the record he broke here stood for 48 years and who knows how long it will be if it's ever broken, if it ever is. >> a number of tremendous stories coming out of this olympic games, mark. i want to ask you about oscar pistorius with the artificial limbs. spoiler alert for those who have yet to see it. how did he fare? >> he did really well. he ran his heat in the 400-meter this morning. he finished second in heat. he hoped -- his goal was to make it into the semis. now he's done it. it's a really terrific story. >> it is a terrific story. mark phillips in london. thanks so much. so it's been quite a week
5:03am
for team usa. the gold medals piling up and hopefully more to come. let's go back to london now for more on the american's success in the pool and what's happening on the track today. shawn gregory is there, senior writer for "time" magazine. shawn, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> track and field off and running now. we saw oscar pistorius winning second in the heat. does he have a chance of winning a medal. >> he doesn't. there's been a divide in the community about whether his prosthetics give him an advantage or disadvantage. just to see him inspire has been unbelievable. >> 17 golds and counting for michael phelps. his last event that he'll be competing in is coming up later on today. we'll probably see it tonight. what are we going to see from michael phelps? is he going to retire after this event? >> he is going to retire. you get the sense that he's satisfied. he wanted to pass -- break the
5:04am
record for most olympic medals of all-time. he's got that. they're going to win tonight most likely. it will be a nice ending. i'd be shocked if he comes back at this point. >> we've got another american swimmer, her career is just getting started. talking about 15-year-old katie la deck i. the young he's at the games. she's making history. is u.s. swim swimming going tore okay after michael phelps. you've got missy franklin. with those two coming in, is u.s. swimming going to be okay? >> definitely. i mean katie came out of nowhere. missy franklin has been solid, she's been great. she's dedicated her medals to her hometown of aurora. she's been a great story. this nice kind of -- on both sides, you have phelps coming out, easing his way out. the young up and comers coming in. it will be strong in rio going forward. >> the finals coming up later on today, the match throwing scandal this week. is there any fallout still from
5:05am
that? >> the match scandal, it's interesting. nfl teams tank games all the time to get draft position, playoff position. they rest guys. these kind of things happen. the problem with badminton. they're very bad actors. they were smashing the birdie into the net. it's not that offensive. they have to cover it up better. like the colts, for years used to finish 13-0, 14-0 and rest peyton manning. they need advice from the nfl. >> more action to come from london. shawn gregory, thank you so much. we turn now to events a bit closer to home. tropical storm ernesto is churning across the caribbean threatening jamaica and haiti. it's expected to reach hurricane strength by monday. so for more on that, we turn to cbs news hurricane consultant dave bernard at cbs station wfor in miami. it's great to have you with us, dave. good morning. >> good morning, rebecca.
5:06am
here's the satellite picture of the storm. it's certainly grown in size from what we saw yesterday. where you see the blues and purples, those are more intense thunderstorms. so indeed, it looks like ernesto is beginning to strengthen. in fact, the winds have increased overnight. they're now 60 miles per hour. this is about 690 miles east, southeast of jamaica moving to the west at 18 miles per hour. the future track brings ernesto potentially to a category 1 hurricane by tomorrow night or early monday morning, very close to jamaica. certainly bad conditions are possible there. in looking ahead, as we go into tuesday, wednesday and thursday of next week, notice that is when there's the possibility this storm could be entering the gulf of mexico. it's just too early to say what, if any, impacts this could have on the united states coastline. certainly, if you have plans or cruises going into the western caribbean sea, around cancun or cozumel, there could be a hurricane threat there in the
5:07am
next 72 hours in the mid part of next week. here's the wind impact. this is the highest threat potential for winds over the next five days. the highest threat is where you see the red. a lot of it over the open water. the cayman islands, jamaica and haiti could have tropical storm force conditions. this will be a storm that we definitely want to keep a close eye on. rebecca and terrell, back to you. >> dave bernard in miami. pthanks, dave. we'll keep an eye on that throughout the weekend and monday. now to the most pressing issue in this election year. in the latest jobs report, 163,000 jobs were added in the july. that's the most since february. it didn't help the unemployment rate which ticked up to 8.3% much the jobless rate has been stuck above 8% for 42 consecutive months and 3.5 years. >> the candidates wasted no time putting their special spin on the numbers. >> the official unemployment number 8.3%.
5:08am
that's the longest period of time, 42 months, the longest period of time we've had unemployment above 8% in american history. since this has been recorded. this is an extraordinary record of failure. >> we haven't had to come back from an economic crisis this deep or this painful since the 1930s. but we also knew that if we were persistent, if we kept at it, and kept working, that we'd gradually get to where we need to be. >> and joining us now is jack otter, he's executive editor for cbs "moneywatch".com. it is great as always to have you with us. >> thanks. great to be here. >> they wasted no time making this political, jack. >> he jumped right on it. >> it's amazing how to parse the numbers. the unemployment numbers was above 8.2%. it went up to 8.254. that means you round it up to 8.3. >> rounding error. >> they made three months of sluggish hiring but the most
5:09am
jobs created since february. is this a new trend? >> we can always hope so. the market was expecting 100,000. since the market moves on expectations more than the reality, we got 163, we saw a great rally. that doesn't mean it's great news. this is better than worse. but it's tepid job growth. not nearly what we need to get out of the great recession. >> just to keep up with population growth, you need 150,000 jobs a month. for those people who are long-term unemployed, the 5.2 million, 40% of the population who has been unemployed for more than six months, what can they expect down the road? >> well, it has ticked down slightly. last month it was 5.4% for those long-term unemployed. but this could be the worst legacy of the recession. because the longer you're out of work, the harder it is to get a new job. it can actually affect more than one generation and it's possible that many of these people literally will never enter the workforce again.
5:10am
they'll retire early. >> nearly 90% of the big cities in this country, you've got universities there. kids are graduating from school. also included in that unemployment rate. is this -- >> certainly for now. by some estimates, 50% of recent graduates are unemployed or employed in a job that doesn't require a degree. so it's bad. i would say, however, that at that age, at that job level, things can move quickly. took me a long time to get my first job. >> look where you are now. >> been employed since. but it's true that things do move quickly. so they need to keep at it. and the one crucial thing is no one should be discouraged from getting a college degree. when you look at the bigger picture of all ages, the unemployment rate among college graduates, 4.2%. full employment, there is no crisis. the entire jobs crisis is with people who lack a college degree. >> a discussion about education. jack otter thanks for joining
5:11am
us. >> glad to be hear. mitt romney is in indiana but he'll hit the road on a bus tour next week on key battleground states. his campaign admits he has a likability problem and hopes the trip turns it around. there are some topics that he's not talking about. joining us now from washington is major garrett, white house correspondent for the national journal. it's great to have you with us, major. good morning. >> good morning. what is romney's strategy. don't touch the money and the religion topics, the dressage, his wife's horse competing in the olympics, or is it better to actually address those things in this campaign? >> i'm back in washington. i spent two days earlier this week in boston with all the top romney advisers and three days in chicago with the obama advisers. there's one thing they agree on. probably only one thing. that mitt romney has a problem connecting with middle class americans. many of them believe he is a potential turn around specialist. if you look at the polling data, both campaigns agree mitt romney
5:12am
has an edge over the president, who might make the better decisions for the future for the u.s. economy. voters are still holding back, at least the undecided ones. both campaigns agree, one reason they're holding back is they're not sure they want to follow where mitt romney is telling them he wants to lead them. he's not sure who he is. the romney campaign will spend next week and the week after that, leading up to the republican convention in tampa to tell more about who he is, what motivates him. why he would not only be an effective leader but great for the middle class. you'll see it on almost every document to bring home the message that not only is he good for the economy generally but for the middle class. that's terrain that so far the obama campaign tried to dominate. how much do we know in general when we elect candidates about their personal lives and back story versus their policy measures an does that generally win out over whatever we expect them to do while they're in
5:13am
office? >> voters want both. they want specific, policy positions, evaluate themselves. they also want a story, narrative. who are you? how does your story relate to my american story? the romney campaign knows that on that side of the ledger, my story, how it relates to your american story, there's a gap. one said that it's not that mitt romney is rich, he's been too rich for too long. they believe that's become an embedded perception for some undecided voters. they've got to find a way to more directly humanize mitt romney and make his story more connected and more likeable to the average voter. >> all right. major garrett, we appreciate it. of course, we'll be following the bus tour throughout next week on "cbs this morning." thanks very much. to space now. nasa gearing up for what's being called seven minutes of terror. that's how long it will take the mars rover curiosity to get from space to the surface of mars on
5:14am
monday morning. it's one of the most complicated landings ever. curiosity will hit the atmosphere traveling at 13,000 miles per hour. a heat shield will protect it. and a giant parachute will help slow it down. then rockets kick in, getting the rover to within 20 feet of the surface in what's called a sky crane that gently lowers it to the surface. it all has to work perfectly. that's why everyone is concerned about the risk at nasa. let's talk to the senior scientist at the exploratorium in san francisco. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> it's called seven minutes of terror. i just went through it. does this sound crazy to you? >> it sounds crazy but boy it's hard to land on mars. you need to think crazy to get there safely. >> a scale of one to ten what are the chances that this thing works? >> i think it's in the 9s. those engineers at jpl are really good. >> landing on mars has been a tricky thing. 70% of the missions that landed on mars have failed. that's both the u.s. and with
5:15am
russia as well. what are the factors that complicate this? >> the atmosphere of mars is thick enough to heat your spacecraft and melt it on the way in if you don't slow down in the right way. it's thin enough that it's hard to slow down. it's a delicate balance between slowing down fast enough and not slowing down at all. that's what takes this incredibly complicated heat shield parachute rocket sky crane maneuver. >> not to mention, this is something that scientists won't be seeing in real time. there's going to be a delay. why? >> well, it takes 14 minutes at this point for light to get from mars to earth. radio signals too. so this lander will be on the surface of mars in one piece or many for seven minutes before the signal gets back to earth to tell us that it's successful or not. >> we've had missions like this before. what makes this one different in. >> well, this one, it's the size of a smart car in terms of weight. it's one ton on earth with 165
5:16am
pounds, about a person's worth of science instruments and the last missions were much smaller. they had like 20 pounds of science instruments for the rovers that we know so well. >> if this mission is a success, we look a little bit more long-term. what do we expect to find out, what are we looking for? >> looking for the answer to one of the most important questions that humanity has asked. that is, is there life on other worlds. this is just one step in nasa's well-planned procedures to find out if there's been life on other worlds. this one is looking for the habitats for life on mars. could life exist there now or has it ever existed there? >> itching with anticipation. we'll have to find out. >> paul thank you so much. >> thank you. there is new tension in the middle east this morning following iran's claim of a successful missile test. iran says it was a new version of its short-range ballistic missile which can hit a target up to 185 miles away. that is not enough for the weapon to reach israel.
5:17am
but it does pose a more serious threat to iran's immediate neighbors and those along the persian gulf. winds that have been fanning wildfires in oklahoma are expected to diminish today giving firefighters some much-needed help. dozens of homes and buildings in four counties north and south of oklahoma city were destroyed. hundreds of people were forced to evacuate. there are no reported injuries. the fire may have been set deliberately. president obama turns 51 years old today. he got an early birthday present while campaigning on thursday in orlando. >> happy birthday to you ♪ happy birthday to you ♪ >> president returns to the white house tomorrow. in the meantime, it is party at camp david. >> it's party right here. we do it right here. >> uh-huh. >> it's about 19 minutes past the hour. john elliott w cbs is in for lonnie quinn and has the first
5:18am
check of the weather. >> party by the way. >> by the way, the president shares his birthday with billy bob thornton who played the president in what film? >> billy bob thornton? played the president? >> yeah, yeah. let's talk about your weather. we are concerned about strong storms. you can see it right there. northern plains pushing into the upper great lakes and parts of the mid-mississippi valley and even the ohio valley could be dealing with strong to potentially severe storms. that is one of the hallmarks of your weather today. lots of instability in the atmosphere and lots of heat in the southern states and out west as welcoming up a little later. we'll talk about the heat we can't beat. that is a quick look at the national forecast. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend.
5:19am
love actually. that was the movie that billy bob played the president. we actually love rebecca and terrell. i'll send it back to you guys. >> we love you too. even though you ask us brain busters. no idea. an amazing discovery in the mountains of afghanistan. after more than a decade of war, a couple of extremely rare snow leopards have been found and for the first time ever fitted with satellite collars. as john bentley tells us, the animal is fighting its own war against extinction. >> these are new images of some of the most reclusive animals in the world. snow leopards. the first time snow leopard cubs have ever been filmed in their den. these cubs were weighed and tagged so researchers can learn more about these endangered animals. >> we always say maybe there's 100 snow leopards left in
5:20am
afghanistan but we don't know. >> david lawson is the leader of the wildlife conservation society in afghanistan. the population of snow leopards dropped by 20% over the past 16 years. >> i'm going to put a microchip. >> he hopes by tagging and tracking the adults, they can learn more about them and help the people of afghanistan at the same time. >> if a snow leopard environment is healthy, the environment is healthy. the people will also be healthy. they'll have good livelihoods. >> snow leopards live in one of the most isolated areas of earth. that's why this species has been mostly unbothered. but the 30 years of war that ravaged afghanistan. there are other threats to the national animal. poachers and an illegal cat trade still pose a big problem. it's estimated there are less than 8,000 left worldwide. so it is up to conservationists like these to help reverse that trend. >> oxygen. quickly, quickly. >> within hours the tranquilizer
5:21am
that fell this cat will wear off and he'll return to the wild. in a country brought by decades of violence, snow leopards are rising again. for "cbs this morning saturday," this is john bentley in kabul, afghanistan. >> beautiful animals. >> beautiful footage. incredible footage. we're going to be right back. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." ,,,,

5:24am
5:25am
as we just teased, apparently your sleep position, the way you sleep at night can say something about your personality. >> for those of us who do actually sleep, that is a start. that's my issue is i don't actually have -- we did this before. >> we saw you sleeping. you can't claim to not sleep. because we saw you do it. >> mild sleep apnea, so i have trouble getting into the deep rem sleep. >> do you know what position you sleep in? >> it's fetal. >> that's the big one, right? >> uh-huh. >> i can't do fetal because it messes up my neck. i end up being on my back and sometimes -- >> this is great for your image, by the way. >> i expected nothing less. >> more and more. >> i'm glad they're studying
5:26am
sleep because sleep is so important. as a couple, we don't sleep together during the week. i'm in one part of the house, my wife in the other part of the house. >> that's what keeps you together. >> that's right. all these studies are saying we need to focus more on sleep and have better waking hours. >> but i also heard when you sleep with someone in the bed, you actually get better sleep. >> i'm just saying. i wanted to put it out there. >> we'll try that tonight, terrell. >> wow. >> i sleep like a soldier or a starfish. that's what i learned from reading about the segment that's coming up. i like to mix it up a little bit. i was actually surprised. i don't know how many people actually maintain that one sleep position throughout the night. >> i can't imagine. >> exactly. >> soldier and starfish. >> i am excited to see what that says. >> i don't know what that means. >> we have to salute now. >> a soldier starfish. don't ever salute me. but salute the real soldiers. they deserve it. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,

5:28am
looks lycra lee, north carolina, struggling to make a little sunshine. we're working on it. welcome back to "cbs this morning saturday." >> i'm terrell brown. olympic gold medalist gabby douglas. when she became the first african-american gymnast ever to win the all-around. she did more than strike gold. she became an instant media empire. just hours after striking gold in thursday's all-around women's competition, 16-year-old gabby douglas became a familiar face on the front covers of newspapers across the country. even at the gym in virginia beach, virginia where douglas trained until two years ago, everyone is caught up in the
5:29am
frenzy. >> we're seeing her as an olympian. that's what people know her as. i see her like gabby, my friend. >> that friend is already on the cover of kelloggs corn flakes. the first of many likely endorsement deals for douglas. just the fourth american to win the gold in the women's all-around competition. back in 1984, mary lou rhett ton became the first to claim that honor landing on the cover of wheaties. olympic athletes have been cashing in for decades. whether dorothy hamill on the ice or mark spitz who became a poster boy and spokesperson after winning seven gold medals at the olympics in the '70s. it was projected that michael phelps who became the most decorated medalist in the history of the olympic games will earn -- the challenge for douglas, making star power and earning potential last. for america's newest sweetheart the greatest legacy is being felt just hours after her gold
5:30am
medal triumph. >> she has inspired a whole generation of young african-americans to say, you know what, i can do this too. i mean, i get -- >> the question here, how does a young person like gabby douglas control her media empire? >> ed horn is here, the chief operating officer of madison avenue sports and entertainment. >> good morning. >> what does gabby do right now? what's the best way of looking at these opportunities? >> it really starts for her with having a group around her, advisers, her family. she's lucky that she has a good group. the opportunities are going to be significant. they're going to be coming fast and they really need to have a filter to figure out what are the right opportunities, wa are the wrong opportunities and how do they handle it. >> this was a young person that lived in relative obscurity a few weeks ago. now her life is totally changed. when we talk about earnings potential, what are we talking about here? >> it's amazing. when you think about what she's done and accomplished over a short period of time, you know, there's all kinds of numbers that could be thrown out. i think the most important thing
5:31am
is that it's handled properly. she makes sure that she defines her brand and then you move from there. >> i'm curious. if you were to pick a number, what would you say? >> in the short term, i can't imagine it isn't well into the seven figures over the next four years. depending on where she goes. 1 to $3 million is not a number that anybody should think is unrealistic. >> which brands should she be associated with right now? >> you got to imagine, the obvious ones are brands that appeal to girls, moms with children, those who take advantage of who she is. she's wholesome, attractive, articulate. she's a ball of energy. those are the types of brands that you've got to imagine would be the most appropriate for her to consider. >> is there any risk of overexposu overexposure. >> there always is. that's the challenge as was referenced in your piece. how much is too much? there are lots of short term opportunities. the opportunity now is how do you balance that to build for the long-term and sustain revenue, not just in a year or two years or four years but over decades. >> one of the things that i love
5:32am
about gabby douglas, you see her, when she smiles you start to smile. when she laughs, you start to laugh a little bit. she's a marketer's dream. should she strike now while the iron is hot? >> she has to strike now. the opportunities are going to be there for her, but at the same time, as i said, she needs to strike now, but she also needs to look at this in the long-term as well. will she be back for real? what are the opportunities not just with brands but content, television shows, other appearances that will get her outside of the gymnast world to make her a celebrity in the long-term. >> what kinds of products should she avoid? >> i think anything that is inconsistent with who she is. she's still a young girl. so products that put her in a place you wouldn't expect to see her. i think those are the things that sometimes people make mistakes. the opportunity is going to be significant for her. she doesn't have to look hard for the right opportunities. >> what is it that makes her stand out so much. you know, >> when you look at the olympics, we love to see heroes and champions. but in her case, what you also
5:33am
see is somebody who comes from humble beginnings, had to really struggle, perseverance, determination, all those values which a corporate marketer looks for. >> thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. here's john elliott of w cbs tv in new york with another check of the weather. john is just getting into place. we're taking our time. >> stare aimlessly around as he moves. >> it's a big studio, isn't it? >> it's easy to get disoriented. >> it's massive. you know what else is massive, a big area of high pressure causing hot weather headaches. we are still sizzling, boy, from st. louis to tulsa, into austin, we have heat advisories, heat warnings, the real feel numbers. the bottom line. it feels like 100 to 110. high pressure also bringing heat to unusual places, into parts of the pacific big area of high p. the one place to be to escape the heat is in the northern

didn't have support, paying her medical bills. >> the more paper i got, the more panicy and depressed i got. i felt incompetent really. that made me feel worse. i finally, you know, i mean i stopped opening the envelopes. >> this is one i got last year. >> that didn't stop the bills from coming. in the end, she reports owing between $15,000 and $20,000. that's when she was introduced to a company called med claims liaison. and its founder, nancy kay. the company was created to help patients like noreen sift through their medical bills and ultimately reduce their payments. >> she came to my house and we sat down, i brought out the box. >> she said it happens a lot. >> in fact, 20% of insurance claims were misprocessed last year. according to the american medical association. >> when 20% are wrong, that causes a financial problem for
5:40am
physicians, for patients and the overall health system. if you imagine that your credit card bill was wrong 20% of the time each month, you'd go crazy. >> dr. robert wa is the chairman of the board of trustees of the ama. he says billions are wasted each year on misprocessed claims. >> there's no specific bad guy. but it's very complex and it requires a lot of time and energy. it requires being relentless. >> in noreen's case, being relentless meant combing through paperwork, getting the insurance companies to pay more. and negotiating with the hospitals to get noreen's bills lowered. >> there are two places where we can get the money back. one is from the hospitals where a patient has either paid or been billed and then the other area is from the insurance companies who have denied coverage on an initial appeal. most have experience in the
5:41am
industry and no ways of negotiating payments that the average patient wouldn't. med claims specializes in cancer, autism, addiction and fertility. >> we focus on these areas because these are conditions that have a lot of insurance complexity. and high out-of-pocket expenses. >> med claims then takes a cut of the money it saves. >> on average, within four months we've recovered $10,000 back for our customers. it's a service that pays for itself quickly. >> i wish that the money spent on those companies could in fact, be spent on health care. that delivers better care for my patients. >> but for noreen connolly, med claims was about more than the $10,000 it saved her. >> most of that's in the past. >> it was about peace of mind. >> i wanted to pull the sheets up over my head, not know anything about this. and she basically took my hand
5:42am
and said, we can do this. and did it. >> so you can work with a company like med claims, you can also do this on your own, terrell. if someone is out there saying i don't know if i can afford something like med claims. they take a portion of whatever proceeds you get back. but also for those who think they might want to try it on their own, they can. you have to be attentive to detail, go through literally every single piece of mail that you get from the hospital from your insurance provider and go back. there's the ability to have that conversation with your doctors and the insurance company. >> that's really what this company does is go through with a fine tooth comb and look at everything sm. >> absolutely everything. >> that's great. coming up next, we're asking the question. do you sleep on your side? well, it could mean that you're shy. easygoing. or even cynical. we'll tell you about the sleep positions and how they reveal your personality. i'm listening as well. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."

so do you want to learn more about your partner? you don't have to go through their phone, their text messages, e-mails. all you have do is take a close look at how they sleep. new study says a person's sleeping position reveals a lot about their true personality. >> researchers say there are six fundamental positions, fetal, yearner, log, soldier, starfish and free fall. joining us now is janet kennedy. she's a licensed clinical
5:47am
psychologist who created ncy sleep doctor, a comprehensive resource for sleep solutions. great to have you with us. >> good morning. >> how did you sleep? >> i'm a side sleeper. i go between the fetal and the -- not really the soldier. mostly fetal. >> fetal is the most popular. >> most people sleep on their sides. it does say something about your personality. but it's the healthest sleep position because it preserves the back alignment. you're less likely to wake up with aches and pains. >> i sleep in the fetal or fetus position. what does that say about me, about my personality? >> the study says that you might be sensitive and shy. >> uh-huh. >> all right. >> yearner -- i got to move on from that. >> him and shy. i don't know. >> i was thinking that myself. >> sensitive maybe. log and yearner? >> the yearner is more open.
5:48am
if you think about a person with their arms out. they're more open to what others say. a log is -- it's hard to imagine sleeping on my side with my arms at my side. similar to other side sleepers. >> next one is the soldier. what does that say? >> the soldier, they say you're quiet and reserved. again, i'm not so sure. quiet and reserved with also high standards. that may apply. >> i also sleep like a starfish. >> that's another back position. starfish, they tend to make good friends and be social. what's important to understand about sleeping on your back is that it's not necessarily the healthiest position for sleeping. because it tends to lead to snoring and also sleep apnea if you tend to have sleep apnea. it makes it worse. >> i think i know a little bit about that. a little bit it's one of those
5:49am
things you have to deal with. free fall is the next one. what's that about? >> sleeping on your stomach. that's actually the worst position for adults. you see children happily sleeping on their stomachs. they have more neck flexibility. it's easy for them to be comfortable on their bellies and move their head from side to side. we tend to lose that flexibility as we get older. we have to contort ourselves to be comfortable and breathe on our stomachs. that can lead to pain in the neck and the lower back as well. >> how do they come up with the personality types based on your sleeping position? which changes, by the way, throughout the night. >> 11 to 13 times a night. you know, i do kind of wonder about the study and what sort of personality test he was giving. i wasn't able to find that in the methodology of the study. as a scientist, i kind of wondered a little bit. it's a jumping off point. they can do more studies and see if this hold out. >> it seems like a great way to use this information in argument with your partner.

>> one of the best parts i've ever had was in the jungle, john houston's picture. and then seven year itch with tony wilder. >> you think that's going to be a big one, too, don't you? >> pardon? >> you think that's going to be a big one, don't you, the seven-year itch? >> yes, i think it's going to be a big picture. i would like to continue making this picture. >> what's the smallest part you ever had? >> i'm in a picture called tomahawk. had one word. not exactly a word. i said, mm. >> who helped you most in your movie career, marilyn? >> well, a number of people have contributed greatly. i think when john huston wanted me for the part in asphalt
6:14am
jungle and i think when billy wilder wanted me for the part in seven-year itch. i think that was very important. also working with my coach. she's helped me very much from the very beginning. and i also got a great deal from attending classes with michael check off. >> now that you're a new yorker, how do you like this city anyway? >> i love it. everyone is very friendly. and it's a very optimistic city. >> how do you like connecticut? >> i like it. it's the first time i had ever seen the woods. i love to walk in the woods with the dog. i enjoy it. >> are you always recognized wherever you go in the nearby towns and in new york? >> no. not really. i can put on a coat and no

6:16am
evidence, it goes on and on and on. all of that stuff sort of leads to the fact that this remains one of the biggest mysteries of the 20th century. >> what specifically happened the night she died? what do we mow? >> well, there's a lot -- again x you can't quite get to the bottom of any of it. the baseline is she was living in a house that she had probably bought about six months before in brentwood, california. she was living with a live-in house keeper. eunice said that around midnight of that night, 50 years ago tonight, she found, she went into the hall and saw light under marilyn's door. got concerned about that and knocked on the door. got no answer. called her psychotherapist. the psychotherapist got into the bedroom by breaking the window. found her dead on the floor. i'm sorry, on the bed with the phone in her hand. and this was at 12:30 at night. but they did not call the cops until four hours later. >> so all of those events don't
6:17am
quite line up. what's the storyline with that? what's the issue with that storyline? >> first of all, the next day they changed the time frame. it went from 12:30 to 3:00 a.m. it's an enormous number of other people, peter lawford, joe dimaggio jr.'s son that contradicts that central thesis. that was the first version by eunice murray. >> your thesis is she was murdered? >> not exactly. it's that she could have been been murdered. >> how -- >> i hate to be speculative. you can't get too far in the landscape without running into the name kennedy. i think there's absolutely no doubt at all that kennedy brothers were having sexual relations with marilyn monroe. >> multiple brothers? >> yes. >> bobby, the attorney general, jfk, the president of the united
6:18am
states, they sort of handed her off to each other. i don't see how anyone can say that did not happen. >> could it have just been really shady, not completely thorough police work? you know what, maybe marilyn monroe, she really did commit suicide and the right investigation didn't take place afterward. >> she could have committed suicide, sure. however, the big thing that argues against that was the amount of drugs that were found in her bloodstream. in order to have the level of drugs that she had in her bloodstream, she would have had to have taken at least 50 sleeping pills in an incredibly short period of time. in order to get to that. in addition to that, there was no water glass found in her locked bedroom. and there was no water in her locked bedroom. how does that happen? >> the mystery continues. >> jim backer, thanks so much. we'll be right back. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."

stupid enough to pay it and the second reason is taxes. airline tickets are taxed at a huge premium in terms of taxes from the federal government. if you built on the end of the fee, you pay the tax. if you take it out of the airline fare and charge as a separate fee, it's sales tax. the airlines make more money that way, by paying less taxes. you asked about what they're doing next. listen to this. the airlines, we just did a survey that said that 10% of the people would pay additional money, at least $10 to get off the plane first when it lands. how bad is your flight? how bad is your flight? >> i'm one of them, peter. >> how bad is your flight you want to pay $10 to get off it. some people actually pay more. >> the only reason i get on a plane is to get off that plane, peter greenberg. >> time to get off it. >> coming up, the dog days of summer. some great ideas on how to keep your four-legged friends nice and comfortable in the extreme heat. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."
6:25am
if what we just saw was the first airplane seat, i want to see the airplane it was attached to. >> wouldn't want to be in it. >> you should have seen the movie. it was a horrible movie, subtitl subtitles. different topic. matt freed love is a high school lacrosse player and the other day he got a public lesson in manners. >> when he cut in line, his name was not called. his coaches forced him to read an apology in front of the passengers. look at this. >> during the boarding process, i took advantage of this airline's kindness. when some of my teammates were called to the front of the line, i was not and yet, i cut in line and took a seat that rightfully
6:26am
belonged to one of you good people. this is not how my coaches, teammates or parents expect me to behave. and for all of this, i apologize. >> they should laminate that message and post-it on the inside of every airplane. >> you're clapping. >> good for his coaches and i'm sure his parents are thrilled and his teammates are probably. they may have been the ones laughing. this happens all the time. there's a reason you board the way you board. whether it's first class versus business versus coach. you should obey the rules. >> good gracious, though. that didn't seem a little harsh for cutting the line? >> i think that's great. >> i love the reactions of passengers. some are laughing. some are boo'ing. some are freaked out. they don't know what's going on. >> is that guy safe to be on the plane with me? that would have been my first thought. i'd be looking at the exit. where are they? counting the number of seats before the exit.
6:27am
i do that before every flight you know. >> look for birds. ,,,,,,,,

welcome back to "cbs this morning saturday." i'm rebecca jarvis. >> good morning everybody. i'm terrell brown. coming up, this is the new truth about lying. turned out, lying to yourself can be good for you. we'll have that surprising story coming up. >> keep lying to yourself, terrell. plus, now that the dog days of summer are here, advice on how to keep your favorite canine cool and comfortable. >> what are you getting at there? >> nothing. just ignore it. >> big sigh. hope of simply ming. he'll talk about how his degree in mechanical engineering helps him out in the kitchen. he's busy over there. >> terrell is a teller of truth
6:29am
to everyone. >> i just want you to know. >> it is all covered up. but first we head over to john elliott, another truth teller for a final check of the weather. >> thank you, rebecca and keep lying to yourself, terrell. you know what, no lying. it has already been a long hot summer, that's part of the problem. we have a liep of storms along a cold front pushing through parts of the upper great lakes. pop-up storms possible ohio valley into parts of the northeast, the southeast and monsoon moisture out west as well. now, focusing our attention on the tropics. and ernesto. 60 mile an hour wind. where is it headed? it's headed west. we could see it reach hurricane status by monday morning. of course, we'll be watching that as we work our way through the weekend. that is a quick look at the nation's forecast and beyond. now here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend.
6:30am
>> lonnie is away. but there's still time to play. time for a shoutout and it goes to ind know la, iowa and their national balloon classic. it is one of the most beautiful and colorful festivals in the country. do you know you can always take a ride. thanks to everyone watching on "cbs this morning saturday" only on kcci newschannel 8, 30% chance much storms. keep it there on channel 8 and they'll take care of you. right now i'm done. we'll toss things back to terrell and rebecca. >> taking care of business john elliott. thank you. sometimes the truth can hurt or at the very least be uncomfortable. >> sorry. it's my mom. i think she's probably checking on the date. it won't take me long. hello. yes, i'm with him right now. no, not very attractive.
6:31am
no doesn't make much money. it's all right, though. seems nice. kind of funny. a bit fat. has a funny little snub nose. kind of like a frog and a facial. no, i won't be sleeping with him tonight. probably not even a kiss. >> maybe a little white lie would help. researchers say another type of lying can have positive benefits. lying to yourself. >> a new study found we can convince ourselves we're more talented than we are. is this what you were getting at earlier in. >> yes. >> weave the co-author of happy money, the science of smarter spending and associate professor of business administration. need more hieg lying in studio. you've done a lot of work on
6:32am
self-perception. >> we generally find that it's okay to fool yourself a little bit. we often think if you fool yourself at all, it's a bad thing to do. but if you tell little lies to yourself, in the short term it can make you feel smarter and better and all the things we like to feel. but in the longer term, it can really backfire. >> the thing is when i lie to myself, i know that i'm lying. how do you make yourself believe that you're lying when you're lying? >> we forget. really quickly. if you're really motivated to think something about yourself, even if in the moment you think i'm going to tell myself a little bit of a lie, we can show a little while later, even though you knew it at the time, you completely forgot approximate it. you pleefd that wbelieved that along. >> there's interesting science going on in the brain versus lying and telling the truth. >> that's right. we show in our studies, if you're cheating on a test for example, you would think you would know you're cheating on the test. you wrote the answers in your hand and peeking at them.
6:33am
you would think you'd be aware that you're cheating. instead, our brain tricks ourselves into thinking basically, i peaked at the answer to get that question right. but i kind of knew it all along anyway so i'm kind of a genius. >> would you say from research that people have an inflated sense of self. honestly, if somebody can look at their hand with literally cheats ton and think they're telling the truth, then doesn't everybody have a different sense of who they are. >> not everyone does but most do. there's a funny study that showed they blended people's faces with pictures of attractive people. you had to find which one you were in the array. it was really hard to do. people think that the person they are is someone who is a little bit blended with a really attractive person. we actually literally see even our faces at more attractive than everyone else sees us. >> you're saying a lot of this is good. i'm thinking this could be bad. somebody commits a crime, they
6:34am
convince themselves that they did not do what they actually did. what are we talking about here? >> that can happen for sure. another place it can backfire is in relationships. >> you're in a bad relationship. you convince yourself to stay in it. i don't know anything about that, by the way. >> or you can even think about convincing yourself that you're a great person but it's not easy to be married to that person. who thinks they're better than they are. >> i luckily don't have that problem in my marriage. what are other applications of these theories. where have you seen them utilized in daily routine. >> one funny study that was done, if you look at the time it was men and women who are married, asking them to estimate what percent of the housework they did. their estimates add up to more than 100%. everybody thinks they're doing more than half of the housework. >> which of that group thinks they're doing more. >> everyone is inaccurate. but it is true that men overestimate more than women. >> i'm glad we settled that

6:39am
they'll be comfortable at pretty much whatever you're at. >> what is the telltale sign that something is wrong when you're walking your dog. >> i own a dog care company. dog walking is a huge component of our company. i tell the walkers and dog owners to be aware of taking short walks, making sure you have plenty of water, keeping the dogs on the shady side of street. if dogs pant excessively, drooling, lethargic, those are the telltale sign that they're suffering from heat exhaustion. >> if you see that happening to your pet, what do you do? >> get them hydrated, get them in the cool quickly. they have to go to the vet immediately if they're really suffering. preventative measures go a long way. they cool themselves through the pads of their feet. throwing water on the floor to splash their paws on the water and getting them off that scalding cement is important. >> is this a different between a dog's age. do you see it as they get older, the different breeds. >> just like people, overweight
6:40am
dogs and older dogs will be more susceptible to the heat. also dogs that have snub noses, the pugs, bulldogs have narrower airways, it's hard to cool themselves as well. >> how about haircuts and things like that. do you want to keep it short? >> does it matter? >> the dogs who get their haircuts should get puppy cuts. longer hair dogs, golden retrievers, chow chows, those breeds' hair serves as an insulator and keeps them cooler. if it's a dog that normally gets a haircut, get them a haircut. >> not all dogs are as fortunate as her to be in here right now in the a kr. >> she's lucky. it's freezing in here and we're both happy about it. >> there are some dogs that are outside. they stay outside. what about those dogs? >> they are very susceptible to sunburn just like us. it's important that there is
